SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank (SWTFTT)
The SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Think Tank (SWTFTT) is a group of ~10 early career researchers (ECRs) from the BIH research community who will work together over the period of one year to develop, conduct and complete a project that aims to improve the quality of translational research in Berlin. The SWTFTT team will receive a grant of up to 20,000 Euros for the development and execution of their project. Selection will be based on applicants’ previous engagement with improving research, project ideas, commitment to the Think Tank and possible role in the group. The funds allocated to the Think Tank may be used for organizing events, developing resources, communicating about the project and so on.

SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Translational Partnership Fellowships (SWTFTPF)
Five selected SPOKES Wellcome Trust Funded Translational Partnership Fellows will receive up to 25 000 Euros over 15 months to undertake projects that add value to their own research ‘micro-environment’ (i.e. research group, department, or clinic). Value will be defined as improving the quality, reproducibility, generalizability or the validity of the fellows’ own research. Fellows will be mid-career researchers (senior postdocs or junior group leaders), selection will be based on the excellence of project proposals (topic/impact/sustainability/overall value). Participants will meet with the QUEST team once a month to exchange ideas, draw upon one another’s expertise and turn project ideas into action.
